or, win the "prize" and spend a life of misery with the selfish bitch...she's the one who carelessly threw the damn thing into the lions den, so she can fucking well go get it herself!

or, maybe the 2 dressed up as a 9 and her fan are symbols for other symbols (money, power, vanity) that people have tendency to relentlessly pursue at all costs, even at the cost of their own happiness and their own very existence (and that of the rest of the planet)


the Lady With The Fan jam is based on the Lydian mode (scale) an uncommon and unstable mode due to it's raised 4th degree (the note B natural in the key of F) creating an ambiguous tonal center...fitting with the mystery

I wonder how Hunter's original version changes things and why Jerry didn't use it. I even tracked down Ian & Sylvia and New Lost City Ramblers before the Hunter record popped by.

Being born into this world is a bit like going into the lion's den, and real prizes are expensive. Easy things might have to be all pulled out after the savoy truffle.

But yeah, caution. Help hands and love but it's really up to you. I like Jerry's comment about being someone's messiah or god, about when they start to go for nails.
